Join us in the fight to create a world without type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to our personal JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes fundraising page!

We are taking part in this year?s Walk to raise funds for the millions of people living with and affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money we raise will help JDRF fund critical research to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people?s lives until no one has to fear developing the disease.

Type 1 diabetes is a life-threatening autoimmune disease in which a person?s pancreas stops producing insulin?a hormone essential to the ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and changes life as they know it forever. It cannot be prevented and there is no cure.

JDRF is the largest nongovernmental funder of T1D research and the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. This science is complex and costly, and every dollar JDRF is able to direct toward research comes from donors like you.†

We are walking specifically for Braeden Hawk. He blessed our lives at the age of three months. He has type 1 diabetes. He has struggled with it since he was 14 months old. His little body goes through so much each day. Insulin keeps him alive! Finding a cure could be life saving. Many people have died as a result of not maintaining this properly. B has touched our lives in a special way. Walking and raising money to help find a cure is a way we can thank him for blessing us.†

Please support us and donate to our Walk fundraising campaign. Your gift will make a difference for millions of people affected by this devastating, life-threatening disease. Won't you please give to JDRF as generously as possible today?

Thank you for your support!
